Well, our first day in Prague started a bit late and lazy. We woke at 9:30 AM to a cold, windy and rainy morning. I ventured out to find us something for breakfast and stumbled upon a glorious farmer's market. I may have bought one of every pastry from a vendor and I think I paid way too much money for butter fresh from the Alps, from another vendor, but oh my goodness, it is good.
I read about a vintage store I wanted to check out and the kids didn't want to go, so while they did math, I walked a mile to the store. The store wasn't really that great but the walk was. Our evening ended with a trip to Old Town Square, which was incredible and incredibly busy.
A few first impressions of Prague:
People are super kind.
Architecture is absolutely amazing and so beautiful.
Grafitti is everywhere and sad to see.
Touristy areas are SO busy, even in the evening hours, when I thought things would be not-so-busy.
Food has been awesome and inexpensive, which is also awesome.
I am having the hardest time figuring out the CZK coins and so whenever I've accumulated enough, I put them all out there and ask if I have enough to pay.
P.S. I forgot to mention that when we went to the airport ATM, I almost got out the equivalent of $1000 USD. Kids and I had figured out the conversion rate and after looking at the first screen, I said, "is that $100 or $1000? It can't be $1000." Luckily Ryder was quick with his math and said, "no, stop, that IS $1000" and sure enough,. it was. You had to advance two more screens to get to the lesser amounts. WHAT ATM GIVES OUT $1000?
